The available degrees offered in guitar are the BM and MM in Jazz Studies performance and the BM in classical guitar performance. Both degrees explore a wide range of styles, techniques and repertoire.

Jazz Studies’ guitarist will perform in small and large ensemble and give concerts throughout the year both at the School of Music and at outside venues. They are also encouraged to explore their creativity in forming their own musical alliances. There are many places to perform in the Eugene area and many student-led ensembles frequently book their own performances. Classical guitarists also find performance opportunities in and around the area.
